hi winston,

thanks 4 ur blog it is always really usefull :)... i got a question 4 u :
when is suggested to use jsf visual web component instead of simple html tag if i convert a template from oswd.org to a visual web project?
i posted the question at
http://www.nabble.com/VWP-page-Layout-management-question.-td15289940.html
but probably i posted it in the wrong place or probably it is a dummy question but i'm a newbye in programming

It is not necessary to use bundled components always. I would advice you to use simple HTML as much as possible. Use bundled components if you really need more customization. Make sure not to delete the "head", "body" and "form" inserted by the tool. Rest are all up to your design skills.

Winston ... I am running into an interesting issue!

I have created 2 pages, one before I installed the plugin (test.jsp) and one after (test1.jsp)
Both the pages attempt to set the text of a static label, within the init() method ...

test.jsp ...
this.staticText1.setText("Yo Yo Ma!");

test1.jsp (I had used the last layout from the template the one that has all)
this.staticText11.setText("Yo Yo Ma!");

well, when test.jsp loads, the statislabel shows the value, coded from the init method
when test1.jsp loads, i dont see the value that was coded in the corresponding init method

what could be going on?

thanks
